New American Standard Bible

Psalm 129

Prayer for the Overthrow of Zion’s Enemies.

A Song of Ascents.

1[a]Many times they have [b]persecuted me from my youth up,”
Let Israel now say,
[c]Many times they have [d]persecuted me from my youth up;
Yet they have not prevailed against me.
“The plowers plowed upon my back;
They lengthened their furrows.”
The Lord is righteous;
He has cut in two the cords of the wicked.

May all who hate Zion
Be put to shame and turned backward;
Let them be like grass upon the housetops,
Which withers before it [e]grows up;
With which the reaper does not fill his [f]hand,
Or the binder of sheaves his bosom;
Nor do those who pass by say,
“The blessing of the Lord be upon you;
We bless you in the name of the Lord.”

Salme 129

Jerusalems skæbne

1En valfartssang.

Fra min tidlige ungdom har mine fjender mishandlet mig
    —lad hele Israel gentage det:
Fra min tidlige ungdom har mine fjender mishandlet mig.
    De angreb mig, men overvandt mig ikke.
Min ryg er mærket af dybe sår,
    som var den pløjet med en plov.
Men Herren er retfærdig,
    han satte en stopper for deres mishandling.

Alle, der angriber Zion,
    vil blive slået og tvunget til at vende om.
De er som græsset, der vokser på taget,
    det visner og dør, før det bliver til noget.
Det fylder ingenting i høstfolkenes hænder,
    der er ikke nok til at binde et neg af.
Ingen, der går forbi dem, vil sige:
    „Herren velsigne jer!”
